Pride is a human emotion. No human emotion is sinful, only that actions which may accompany them. (I'm sure you can figure out the results of pride yourself) It is no wonder that you cannot accept a religion you appear to know nothing about. I suggest you do more reashearch before explaining the notion that "lies at the core of Christianity". No christian denomination that I know of considers love between 2 consenting (married) adults (who are, in some churches, not clergy) a sin. However, you may infact be refering to the notion that no human is without sin, in which case I suggest you make your position clearer. As for the babtism of children, it is a tradition I (and many others) do not agree with and argue against.
